Jersey Aero Club are pleased to announce that, following a tender process leading to a shortlist of two, they have signed a letter of intent with Synergy Aviation to provide Flight Training from the club, and work with together in a joint venture for the provision of GA Handling. We’re now working towards a Heads of Terms on the specifics to be able to look to start operations but the committee is really excited at the potential going forward.
Discussions with the Airport and the Government are in progress about the resumption of flight training with a view to a ;soft start-up’ and some self-fly aircraft hire over the winter in advance of a fuller operation next year. Planning for GA Handling is also progressing for next year when COVID restrictions are relaxed. As part of this we’ll see a complete refresh of the downstairs flying area.
Glen Heavens, Chairman of Synergy Aviation, said: “Synergy Aviation are delighted to have been chosen by Jersey Aero Club to provide flight training and aircraft rental services in Jersey. Both Synergy and I have a long-standing relationship with Jersey and we look forward to continuing to support Islanders with the provision of a world class Flight Training Facility.”
Further details will be provided in due course but both Synergy and Jersey Aero Club have exciting plans in place to create a modern state of the art flying school delivering the highest possible levels of flight training in a friendly, safe and professional environment.
